Not A Con Report  
ConQuesT is more or less over, and although my head isn't really in it, I had fun. It's nice to see people. Spent a while hanging out with Rich Horton like I seem to do every year, and this time I even got books in the process (copies of the "Best of" anthologies he edited -- reading material on the way to Japan in August, perhaps). Got his LJ account, which I didn't know he had. Saw other people, too, of course, although nobody else gave me books or got "friended" on LJ. :-P

Of course, had the usual interesting conversations (TNH is, of course, exactly the right person to have a meta-conversation with about "the state of the publishing industry" -- ah, nostalgia), and ended up talking about Blindsight an awful lot with various people (blame my Cog Sci background). Yadda, yadda, yadda.

Anyway, CWS brackets get named tomorrow -- Rice won't be hosting this year, looks like, but a slot does seem likely, given that they're ranked #1 or #2 again this year, depending on who you ask.

Heh, I thought that might get your attention.

But it doesn't start until next weekend yet. Seeds don't really mean that much yet, still gotta win your games.

Well we didn't win the tourny cuz it used like soccer pool type play to get to the final game. At least it kept the pitchers arms rested. since we're ranked 6th nationally we should get a super regional too.

It was good to see you again! And you were spot on about the Mongolian.
